Mixing Jewish + Gay Stereotypes Is a Recipe for Insta-Camp

You thought Queer Eye Jai Rodriguez was just going to disappear into the ether of irrelevance? And hanging around West Hollywood gay bars? You would be wrong. He’s still a working actor, you see.

Oy Vey! My Son Is Gay! will, inevitably, become an instant camp classic. On the level of The Broken Hearts Club? Probably not. But the film — which premiered this month at the Montreal World Film Festival — looks like a gay Big Fat Greek Wedding, and we mean that in the nicest of ways. But guaranteeing this film will hit camp lore? Bruce Vilanch and Carmen Electra co-star.

Plus there’s the whole gay adoption storyline to make things prescient, for those who need a news peg.
